Pixel Zombies Are Taking Over Your Android Device

Pixel Zombies Are Taking Over Your Android Device

Being a huge fan of zombies and mobile devices, I lit up when I heard about this: the Pixel Zombies Live Wallpaper for my Android phone. I run the Android OS on my iPhone, so I haven’t been able to add this Live Wallpaper to my phone yet but I have played around with it on my brother’s phone and it has some nifty little features.

The red dots on the screen represent zombies; blue represents zombie hunters like Tallahassee from Zombieland and the green ones represent the unprotected people walking about that will soon make a nice snack for a zombie or two. Not only can you monitor the dots and see who comes out alive, but by adding a new icon to the screen, it acts like a bomb and wipes out everything on your screen.

You can download the wallpaper for $0.99 from the Android Market and even if you’re thinking: “Why would I ever pay for wallpaper on my phone?” you surely won’t be disappointed or find this one to be a waste of money.

The only thing left to do is wait for George Romero to have an Android version of his iPhone application released, then even your phone will be a valuable zombie-fighting tool. Hopefully we’ll still have 3G or Wi-Fi access during the zombocalypse and a wallpaper that shows real-time zombie to human and hunter ratios.

George A. Romero To Launch iPhone App

George A. Romero To Launch iPhone App

With the US release of “George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead” upon US theatres in a mere two days, Romero plans to go mobile by launching a new application for the iPhone, appropriately named ‘App of the Dead’.

Developed by Additive Interactive, the app will allow the user to import photos of their friends and family and transform them into brain hungry, undead corpses. It allows you to take over the director role and transform your ordinary friends into some pretty fiendish characters.

Features include:

  • Capturing or importing a photo, followed by adding over 20 zombie features, including open wounds, weapons, and a large gallery of deformed eyes and mouth options.
  • A custom engine that allows you to “shoot” your creations and experience the amazing blood-splatter effect.
  • Save your zombie images to your phone, post them to a social networking website or e-mail them to others.

Although there is no release date specified, it’s rumored that the application will appear in the App Store within the next 2-3 weeks. iPhone owners will be eager to get their hands on this application but I’d be careful, I’ve heard it makes your device a bit hungry and may cause unexplained bite marks and loss of humanity.


Zombie Smash – iPhone Game – Trailer

25 Feb

ZC Barry has been playing the beta version of Zombie Smash for the last couple of weeks (look for his name in the credits!) and, despite throwing tantrums when the zombies over-run his house, has been enjoying it immensely.

If you look closely you can see the app icon in the image for the Zombie Command app.

ZombieSmash! is a Survival Comedy game for the iPhone and iPod touch, featuring undead-themed castle defense and entertaining, physics-based gameplay. The game casts players as Joey, a lone survivor pit against a herd of writhing, unrelenting zombies – to defeat the undead masses, players must use their fingers to flick and smash them until they’re un-undead.

A full review will be out as soon as the game is released and until then you can follow the progress on Twitter or on Facebook.
